(Indy100)   In the last 15 years, more Americans have been killed by homegrown right-wing extremists than by terrorists espousing Islamism. Hmm... perhaps we could... ban them from travelling, in some way?   ( indy100.com) divider line

Doesn't matter. It's far easier to exploit foreigners for political game, and typically far cheaper, too.

Still right-wingers.

If the GOP could barely get off its ass for the attempted assassination of Reagan, why would they bother with gun control for the fark of it.

You call them "homegrown right-wing extremists".  The GOP calls them their loyal base.

So what you're saying is that the actions taken after 9/11 solved the Islamic problem with regards to terrorism on US soil. Ok then.

Now lets address the issue of homegrown radicalized extremists.

Just wait til it comes out that this guy was a left winger. I assume you'll blame the Democrats for this and make jokes about their 'loyal base' too, right?

Lack of traveling may be related to why people become right-wingers.  Not being exposed to other people, places, and cultures contributes to people developing an insular mindset.

Nah. Just stop them for a missing plate, notice they're illegally carrying a gun and then put them in jail.

It worked for this guy. Sure, a little late but still it worked.

White men are tired of being lumped in with the worst in their society? Cry me a river. You all have kept a hold on power by demonizing every other race to the point that even black people think black people are suspicious. Propaganda is powerful and it works.

Context is kind of important.

Westboro is pretty much hated by everyone else but the reasons are wildly different.  When they were waving "God Hates F*gs" in the 1990s nobody on the right batted an eyebrow.  It wasn't until they started showing up at soldiers funerals that Republicans suddenly noticed how scummy they are.

The Branch Dildonians?  Cliven Bundy was the celeb du jour on FOX for weeks and those asshats at the reserve all walked scott free without so much as a peep from Republican leaders.

Do it. What's the plan? What would you like to implement?
 
2017-10-03 12:10:51 PM  
I wonder what happened just before that 15 year period? ... Let's be honest about that.

However, if you want to talk about US related deaths in, say, Iraq in the last 15 years... bet it swamps our local stats.  In any case, we should keep our everyone her in this country.  We're a poor influence on the world.

Basically if you are the person implying that terrorists have a certain look to them and that look doesn't include white people, you are part of the problem.

Also if you think white males can do what they want to be effective but people of different ethnicities have to tow the line with hair, dressing, perfect job, speech, and whatever draconian mannerisms you have devised at the time, you are part of the problem.

No no, the only way to crack down on white terrorists is to.... cater to their every whim and never contradict them ever.

The death toll from 9/11 was nearly 3000. Oklahoma City was 168.
